5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Laptop

Pros: 1) Sharp, bright display
It can be adjusted easily and even on the lowest settings, everything is easy to see.

2) Unbelievable sound quality
The JBL subwoofer and WavesMaxx Audio sound system makes the sound quality unbelievably clear. Movies and music sound great and the WavesMaxx Audio program allows you to make adjustments whether you're listening to music, watching a movie or talking to someone.

3) Very well-built
The laptop feels solid. The plastic is heavy duty and the top half is covered in brushed aluminum. Feels very nice to the touch.

4) Runs quickly and quietly
I've had no problems with it freezing up or the fan randomly running high. The only time it does so is when I game, but that is a given.

5) Light-up keyboard
A very nice surprise; I wasn't expecting it. Very convenient during evenings.

6) Built-in webcam and microphone
Webcam is fairly good quality and the mic is great.

Cons: None that really count against this laptop. The only thing that concerns me is how hot it runs when I play games on it, but this goes for any other laptop out in the market. As long as it is well ventilated it should be fine.

Light gaming (1 - 2 hours) is okay. I would not recommend this as a gaming laptop, however; it has so many good qualities to it that getting it fried because of a game would be a shame.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic overall quality for the price. I couldn't have asked for anything better.

2 out of 5 eggsMediocre 1366x768 display.

Pros: Excellent speakers.
Game performance is moderately decent.
1920x1080 B+RGLED display available on some other models.

Cons: This version of the Dell XPS 15 comes with the 1366x768 display instead of the 1920x1080 display that is available with some other models.

15.6" 1366x768 displays limit multitasking and productivity by making things onscreen large, and they tend to have very poor image quality due to low contrast. It's a good idea to avoid 15.6" 1366x768 displays if you have the necessary budget to get a laptop that suits your needs and at the same time has a better display, and don't require large text for eyesight-related reasons.

The 1920x1080 B+RGLED display available in the Dell XPS 15 is one of the best 15.6" displays available. In addition to its high resolution and contrast, its high color gamut makes colors appear very saturated.

It is important to consider the screen resolution when buying a laptop, because the screen tends to affect the user a lot more than most specs that buyers commonly pay attention to such as the processor and the memory.

Other Thoughts: While I don't own this particular laptop, I have vast experience with the current laptop market and have in the past year made thousands of recommendations to prospective buyers on various forums. I have recommended Newegg often, as it is great place to buy because of its good prices and lack of sales tax.

The Dell XPS 15 is a nice laptop, but I would only recommend buying a model that includes the 1920x1080 B+RGLED display. I would not recommend this particular model or any other model that come with the 1366x768 display.

3 out of 5 eggsMisleading Laptop

Pros: -Great Speed
-great speaker sound for laptop speakers
-lightweight and affordable

Cons: misleading because even though you have a "dedicated" NVidia card, it is based on the technology of NVidia Optimus which isn't even close to ready to be used yet, and you cannot physically switch the onboard intel graphics off. This is not great because then you have to try to go into the Optimus settings to tell it which program you can use the dedicated card on, and even then it still doesn't work sometimes. I just wish I would've known before I bought it.
